Lionel Richie (Commodores) - Sail on
Tekst en muziek: Lionel Richie
(1979)






Sail on, down the line
About half a mile or so
And I don’t really wanna know, ah
Where you’re going



Maybe once or twice you see
Time after time I tried
Hold on to what we got
But now you’re going



And I don’t mind
About the things you’re gonna say
Lord, I gave all my money and my time
I know it’s a shame
But I’m giving you back your name, yeah, yeah
Guess, I’ll be on my way
I won’t be back to stay
I guess, I’ll move along
I’m looking for a good time



Sail on down the line
Ain’t it funny how the time can go
All my friends say they told me so
But it doesn’t matter



It was plain to see
That a small town boy like me
Just I wasn’t your cup of tea
I was wishful thinking



I gave you my heart
And I tried to make you happy
And you gave me nothing in return
You know, it ain’t so hard to say
Would you please just go away, yeah, yeah
I’ve thrown away the blues
I’m tired of being used
I want everyone to know
I’m looking for a good time
Good time, oho



Sail on, honey
Good times never felt so good
Sail on, honey
Good times never felt so good
Sail on, sugar
Good times never felt so good



Sail on
